CC3C #3

Here I am again with the third project in this challenge using a faux tea rose. We are not posting instructions on the techniques of the challenge in order to insure that people who want to learn buy Tim Holtz' fabulous book from where we get all our inspiration!

I skipped #2 because it used a product that I did not own and I have vowed to not purchase any more art supplies until I make a good dent in those that I already own.  However, this week's challenge is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium.  If I win the $50 gift certificate, I can buy enough new products to ensure I never have to skip a challenge again!

On to the Challenge!

Products used: Distress Ink pads in forest moss and frayed burlap, Distress Paints in bundled sage and picket fence, Ranger's Archival Ink in Jet Black, Ranger's Inkssentials Glossy Accents, My stash: 6X6 chipboard panel, hand-dyed paper, sage ribbon, quote stamp.

UPDATE: Congratulations to the winner of this biweekly challenge!  I'm reall…

Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge

I finally stepped out in faith and decided to join an art challenge.  I've been struggling with my muse lately and evidently I am muse decided to step out of the picture and not let me beat her up anymore.

In an effort to regain my artistic desire, I am joining this challenge hosted by Linda Ledbetter of Studio L3. All of the challenges will be based on the 34 techniques from Tim Holtz's latest book, Compendium of Curiosities 3.

So, without further ado, here is my submission for the first challenge sponsored by Inspiration Emporioum.  The prize is a $50 gift certificate!  Even though I've vowed to not purchase any new supplies this year, I don't think I would have an ethical problem with spending a gift certificate.

Hope you follow along on this journey...I'm excited to be back in the studio after a long, dry, non-creative spell.
